Law Day is a national event every April that celebrates the signing of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It is an occasion for the public to learn about the law, the legal profession and the legal institutions that form the cornerstones of Canadian democracy.
In celebration of Law Day 2018, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy (JSGS) and the Canadian Bar Association Saskatchewan Branch will be hosting a public lecture on April 4th, 2018:
Beyond a Reasonable Doubt: The Challenge for Justice in Saskatchewan
The criminal justice system has developed over centuries to balance and protect both the community and the individual. Recent events have caused some to question that balance. Respected members of the Court, Public Prosecutions and the Defence Bar will discuss the value of the criminal justice system, its respect for individual rights and proposals for change.
Mr. Aaron A. Fox, Q.C., Partner, McDougall Gauley LLP and
Mr. Anthony Gerein, Q.C., Assistant Deputy Attorney General, Public Prosecutions, Saskatchewan Justice
The Honourable Madam Justice Lana Krogan, Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench
